A lovely Swedish home full of contrast

I do love a home full of surprises don't you? This lovely apartment styled by Emma Fischer for Bjurfors combines clean, white minimalism with darker bold patterns.  Mid-century touches, brown, beige, green and white hues and an abundance of greenery pull the space together to create a fascinating, yet truly cosy home in Gothenburg, Sweden. Enjoy!

I do appreciate bold wallpaper - it adds a really cosy element to a room. Having said that - my loyalty still lies with the fresh white aesthetic (it could be that I've been leaving in Sweden for 14 years and I know winter is fast approaching....eeeeek!) - I mean, just how lovely is that kitchen dining nook?!
I could totally imagine sitting there for my morning coffee - how about you?!

Do you have a preference for light or dark? Clean or bold? Do tell!

A few items I know and love from this lovely Swedish home: kitchen dining area - Series 7 chair, (does anyone know where the pendant light is from?). Bedroom 1 - source an original mid-century desk heremenu chair. The Ikea Stockholm 2017 Chair is similar. Main roomAnt chairs, Tulip table, jute handwoven rug. Bedroom 2 - Bumling lamp, Hay side table, I love this white linen bed skirt and brown linen bed set, pick up a vintage Beni ourain rug here.

Can anyone help with the name of the wallpaper in the main room? Wonderful if I can update the comments section of the post with the details! The wallpaper in the hallway is Pimpernel by Morris & Co.

A big thank you to Elle Decor US for including me in their piece ' 15 new Scandinavian Trends That are about to Take Off' - I am so happy to be a part of it!

Oh and thank you also to everyone who's provided input on any issues you've been having with the new blog template - so helpful! Hopefully, the majority have been ironed out now,  but give me a shout if you spot anything strange....

Have a lovely day!

  2. Lovely home, except of that 2nd wallpaper!! The first wallpaper is wonderful but the second one kind of spoils things...I wouldn't be able to live with it especially for a long time! So happy for your new book. I'm thrilled about its concept: slow design!! I've been trying to get my clients to understand its benefits for years now... I'm so glad that I can quote you on this!!! Yeehh!

    1. Thank you! I'm so happy you like the sound of my new book - I'm very excited about it - hopefully it'll give you the back-up you need too!

  3. I love it! I think the pendant light in the kitchen is from Muuto.
